Corn Crop

Southeast Minnesota crops are progressing well after wet conditions delayed a final planting push by farmers.
University of Minnesota Extension Educator, Jake Overgard, tells Winona Radio News the corn crop is looking pretty good.

As of last week, 96-percent of Minnesota's expected corn acreage had been planted, which is just 1 percentage point behind the five-year average.

Overgard says this time of year farmers are concentrating on weed control in their fields.

Eighty percent of the state's corn crop is rated in good or excellent condition as of last week.
